    Doona I like the colors of the leafs, the background and how you selected to have just part of the pic in focus, very well done, it speaks of fall and the beauty of it!!!

Donna - another great shot! You and I think alike when it comes to autumn colors - I do very few full trees and instead focus on the leaves, especially with blue sky behind.

Carol S, I wish that you were here when I was trying to figure out a title for this. Ablaze would have be perfect and I'll probably change it. Nice description Thanks for the comments!!

You certainly captured the beauty of the fall colors, and the dark stem gives it balance and contrast. Love it!

Great shot, Donna, and I want in on this party!! We could find a point that's central to all of us (that would probably be my house) and all meet and party! I could maybe provide a sunset or two..haha.

Hi Ma, I have a good idea, Maybe we can have a spring break party down in Florida... I hear it's the place to be that time of the year, besides, I need a new bikini and a tan. The pictures would end up being like an MTV bash!! What do you think about that. You can help us with the Motels and good restaurants.!! Thanks for the comment on my picture too!! I bet that you miss of the beautiful colors up here!!

Thanks Shelly, Abstracts are a lot of fun to shoot. This was a great way to capture the fall feeling without taking in a lot of otherwise dull scenery. I appreciate the comments!!

You forgot the throw in "chance of darkness in the evening"...

Very nice - you captured the essence of fall, why bother with clutter!
